Rustic and Boho Wedding Table Plans

More and more rustic and boho weddings are now making real features out of their table plan. These seating charts become a decoration in their own right and often include quirky props to make them unique. We just love these quirky ideas:

1. Ladders

Set up an old stepladder, decorate each rung with flowers, large letters or other decorations. Add in the details of each table in frames or on large tags.

2. Crates

Wooden crates are perfect at rustic weddings. Fill a crate with flowers and table details.

3. Desks

Find an old desk and paint it to match your theme. Decorate it with lots of props and items that relate to you and display the table plan on the desk.

 

4. Garden Tools

An old wheelbarrow makes a great table plan! Fill it with flowers and display seating assignments attached to garden canes.

5. Mini plants

Tiny plants or flowers in little terracotta pots can double up as seating plan and favour. Display them on a table with wooden lolly sticks in each one showing the guest’s name and their table details.

6. Suitcases

These have become so popular and with good reason. Stand an old trunk on its side, hang mini bunting across it and add seating assignments onto each little flag.

7. Unusual Props

With a little imagination, anything can be turned into a seating plan. Think about bicycles, old window frames and even doors!

Fun and Quirky Table Plan Ideas

If you’re planning a really fun wedding, then your wedding table plan needs to be different! Here are a few ideas that we know will make you smile:

8. Lego

You really can make anyone with Lego so how about making each guest their own personalised mini-figure? Set them around Lego tables or attach a little tag to each so their new owner can find them easily.

9. Board Games

These make perfect table plans! Name each table after a game or divide up one board to make various tables. Use the board itself as the table plan and make place cards to match.

10. Maps

If you’re well known jetsetters or if you just spend a lot of time commuting on the Underground, a map will make a great table plan. Use a large-scale map in the centre of the plan and then use luggage tags to show everyone who’s sitting where.

11. Books

Bookworms need a library style table plan! Set up a display of books with old style library cards showing the seating assignment. Or, use coloured or patterned paper as book jackets with the guest’s name and their table details showing on the book’s spine.

12. Hobbies

Incorporating your hobbies into your wedding table plan is a fab idea. You could use football shirts, skis, vinyl records, cricket bats, hockey sticks or anything that your guests will link to you.

13. Photos

Why not use your old baby photos for your wedding table plan? Photos of you at aged one for table one and so on are a lot of fun and easy to assemble.

Wedding Table Plans for Intimate Weddings

Intimate weddings deserve fabulous table plans. Your select guests can be treated to something different and made to feel so very special:

14. Old Mirrors

Vintage mirrors with ornate frames are ready-made wedding table plans. If you’ve got a steady hand, you can write your seating plan onto the mirror or hire a professional to do it for you.

15. Frames

Choose a selection of wonderful photo frames and display them with each table having its own frame. Add in some framed images of your parents or grandparents at their own wedding for a truly lovely touch.
